Timothy M. O'Neil


Timothy M. O'Neil of Rumford, passed on May 13, 2022. Survived by his wife of 25 years, Tricia (Scardino) O’Neil, Tim was born December 11, 1949, the youngest child of the late Clara M. “Bobbie” (Bream) and William J. O’Neil. Tim was the brother of Constance M. (the late Henry) Voss and William (Judy) J. O’Neil, Jr. He was predeceased by his sister, Deborah A. (the late Justin) Smith.

After growing up in Barrington, Tim worked around the country, building his family, until he returned to RI in the late ‘90s. He leaves behind his son, Ret. Fire Capt. Timothy (Trisha) M. O’Neil, Jr., daughter, Kristen (Brian) B. Daniels and daughter, PFC Kristen E. O’Neil as well as three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Uncle Tim also leaves behind ten nieces and nephews and fourteen great-nieces and nephews.

Tim had a love of life and genuine warmth that welcomed people instantly, making them feel like lifelong friends. In addition, no one loved this country more than Tim. He always made time for family and friends, a pint or a Yoo-Hoo! He was our glue and will be sorely missed. In short, Tim was a good man.
